During work it happens a lot that I need to drag 2 callouts and more - Currently I can only one Callout  in a time.
Is there a way - short cut or another technique to drag call outs together?

Thanks,
Tom

Exactly; highlight multiple items (callouts, clips, etc) with Shift key then drag as one. When satisfied with placement click somewhere on the timeline area to release the highlighting (selection).

Thanks,
I  guess I didn't understand myself correctly - I meant for stretching /extend them not dragging.

Any ideas will be welcome.

Dragging to the right from the right edge of the callout will extend its duration.  But this interaction is for adjusting one callout at a time.

With both callouts selected, you can use right-click > Duration... to change the duration of both callouts to the same value.

Don't have the duration option at all on while using the right_click

Any  other ideas ?

You need to hover your cursor over the selected media in order to get the extend frame option when right clicking.

If the media is selected and you right click anywhere else you will get  different menu commands to choose from.

select and right click on the timeline object, like an image or callout  [but not video or audio clips, transitions, or captions], select the duration option; a fill-in box will appear; enter your desired value
